Full Item Description
The majority of Scorpion Daggers are simple, thick bladed knives, with small perforations barely visible slightly up from the edge. A small handful have been made for more well-to-do clientele, and are fancier.
The blade itself has been drilled to allow passage of fluid from a chamber within the hollowed handle, controlled by a screw twisted by fore-finger and thumb.
Comissioned first by the Desert Rangers of Pelenor, who sought a sidearm with effect against the strange beasts of the deserts, the Scorpion dagger has spread slowly through the lands, mostly in the hands of those described as 'undesirables'.
A variety of poisons, potions, and other unpleasant concoctions may be contained in any given knife, and when found on any who do not bear the authority of the government in one form or another, suspicion of roguedom or assassins always springs to mind.

Excellent non magical weapons. It has some backstory and origin. It is an effective piece.
Short and definitely useful. Nice one.
Good but short.
Don't try and smuggle this through Customs.
Good solid item. Really an iconic item - a safer poison injecting dagger.
I suspect that in a fantasy world where effective blade poisons were more common then ours would also be more likely to have weapons built around them.
